here to be real honest. you know the area and usually there's a buzz, there's an energy on the streets. the power is out. the traffic lights are out. there is no congestion. a lot of the businesses are closed so a lot just looking and not believing what they see at this point. they did come down though to the seawall here to take a look at what happened. the water going into places it had never been here, 14 feet over the wall and into the park, downed trees and what you saw was a lot of lifetime new yorkers getting pictures of those trees with the statue of liberty and never thought they would see anything like this but they are new yorkers and so they're also quick to point out we're resilient. we can get through this but i think their understanding as you talked about it's going to take some time to bounce back from it. >> are the waters receding, jay? >> yeah, they are in some area, that's going to take a lot longer. obviously most of the water gone in battery park. that's why they allowed us to come back in. the subways are the main issue, the veins that pump the heart of the city
, that's where the energies need to be directed at. i think -- i think -- i think it's okay for small states to have a representation. >> if it's not broke, don't fix it, it's doing something about the way they campaign. >> i think the fact small states have overrepresentation is okay. i don't have a problem with it. it was part of the debate. when it comes to generally in the constitutional debates, it was a big issue. the small states were concerned their power would be overtaken with the big states. itis why we have the system we have. we are all on this show and all live in cities. most of our political discussion is influenced by what happens in our cities, city's drive, what happens in our culture. it's okay to have some representation. >> large metro areas, heavy concentrations of people have an influence in so far as they dominate things like the med ia and things like this. >> i don't think they are driving policy or the political conversation. i would just make that little -- >> right. the question becomes, if we were to do away with it like about the bronx being the place w
of energy and labor being put in by both campaigns trying to spin it that they are winning when people are going to vote. like i really honestly don't get it. >> especially when you think about the fact that momentum is a construct that has no application in polling. it's a physical thing. there is no such thing as having momentum in a poll. things change all the time. >> right. >> i do think it's endearing that people put so much faith in nate silver's model. i think he finds it so upsetting. people put him in a place where his whole model is this is not that much faith. >> first of all, there's been like a nate silver backlash. >> yes. >> go through this thing of the way that basically the campaign -- there's not new news being made on the campaign for the most part. the candidates are talking about we're in the home stretch. people have been putting all that energy into poll reading and poll spinning and so there's this entire right wing world of people who are doing nate silver sitcoms. >> the nate silver truism. >> exactly. >> i disagree. i think momentum is critical if you're the
feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north america energy-independent so we can create those jobs. >> for pennsylvania the choice is clear. >> is the choice really clear? obviously the early polling we have indicates it certainly appears pennsylvania leans directly to the president's direction, but obviously romney's campaign thinks they have something still to put up a fight there. >> well, the reason for that, tamron, is the internal polls for the obama campaign and romney campaign are very different. the obama campaign thinks it's up in most of the swing states, but the romney polls show a different story. the public polls show that president obama sleis leading m romney by a decent-sized margin in pennsylvania. >> thank you very much, chris and erin. i know it's a tough conversation. your attention is focused on all the people greatly affected by the storm and also on politics. it's important. search and rescue operations are in progress in atlantic city, new jersey with new video coming in plus the floodwaters still inundating atlantic
, the department of energy, the department of transportation, the department of health -- homeland security and the department of health and human services. obviously everybody is aware at this point that this is going to be a big and powerful storm. and all across the eastern seaboard i think everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. i've spoken to all the governors in all these states. they have issued emergency declarations. those have been turned around quickly here in the white house. we have prepositione assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. we're making sure that food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that are going to be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm is going to hit landfall some time this evening. but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country and millions of people are going to be affected. so, the most important message that i have for the public right now is please listen to
a president who seems to be putting all of his energy into helping the american people survive a storm? it's very hard to go out there and say what a bad guy he is. so this scrambles the rest of this campaign. chris, books will be written about this week. not just about the campaign and not just about the storm, but about the interplay of this storm and this campaign and they will be very fascinating books. >> it's bothered me for weeks now that the president hasn't been able to gain a natural incouple ben see and he's -- now he's forced to take advantage of incumbentcy. he has a job to do. earlier president obama warned the public of the sandy and downplayed the election itself. listen. >> this is going to be a big storm. it's going to be a difficult storm. the great thing about america is when we go through tough times like this, we all pull together. we look out for our friends, we look out for our neighbors, and, you know, we set aside whatever issues we may otherwise to make sure that we respond appropriately and with swiftness and that's exactly what i anticipate is going to happen h
, energy commodities and the soft commodities, that's happening electronically. we have seen oil prices down slightly today. you have seen gasoline prices up, and that's because of the concern of what happens to the refineries in the path of this storm. the refineries that are in the path of the storm probably account for about 7% of all the refineries around the nation. and that's why people are very concerned about when you'll be seeing a shutdown of those potentially and for how long. that's why gas prices have been higher. chuck, back over to you. >> becky quick, thanks very much. >>> it was hurricane gloria in 1985, the last time wall street was shut down on its own for a weather event. >>> next up, we'll be live in delaware where the wrath of the storm is beginning to be felt.
